It depends on what you want to do.  There are many spatial packages that can 
be used for a variety of epidemiological analyses.  Take a look at this link 
http://sal.uiuc.edu/csiss/Rgeo// for a nice summary of the current spatial 
tools in R.

If you are looking for something that will perform scan statistics along the 
lines of SaTScan, the package DCluster will probably be your best option.  
Follow this link 
http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/library/DCluster/html/00Index.html for a list 
of options available in this package

Finally, try RSiteSearch("spatial epidemiology") for some interesting 
threads on the subject

I hope this helps
